More ghetto fabulous!

More of my ghetto not yet fabulous... hehe this will be my future craftroom... there is Al cleaning the walls... good job Al! hehe They don't look like this anymore...

Al's nerd room! No those are not his Winnie the Pooh curtains... they are now gone too... hehe

Master bedroom... you can tell by the built in wardrobe with no doors... That is now a different colour and no weird blue curtains...

How nice is this bathroom... hehe hmmm.... it looks very similar to this still... although I am now the proud owner of a shower curtain... first ever...

Laundry/ Toilet! Dishwasher in laundry? For sure!

Ghetto Fabulous!

I have moved yet again! Currently we are half in half out all over the place! But this house needs some Bobishi love... it is a beach house built in the early sixties and a man with a 'crazy colour' scheme has been living here for 8 years... I thought you guys might like to come on my redecorating/renovating mission? It is my first painting and renovating experience and as Al isn't particularly excited by painting I am working super hard with ever trusty Luetsy assistant (Al's sister:) ).This is what we are working with....
The entrancey/living/dining room....

Just the hot tip... that is no longer red... and the ceiling is no longer navy... and there are no pelmets and no weirdly scented curtains that at some stage appear to have been on fire.....

Then we go into the kitchen.... which looks the same... but cleaner... but it didn't really help... still looks a bit yucky... of course the curtain set up was the first thing to go... hehe

More tomorrow?
You can see my ghetto bathroom, bedrooms and craft room!:)

I knitted a WHOLE dress...

I started this dress last year... but was discouraged by the excessive amount of knitting in what appears to be 4ply or even smaller.... But last weekend I decided. It has to be done. It is only size 1-2 and my lovely niece is only going to be 1-2 for a few more months! So if she is going to wear it in winter it has to be done now! Plus as I pack up my house for the next move I decided I realllly need to finish some of these projects. So knitting knitting knitting! Until I finished last night!

I used this pattern from pear tree yarn, Mila. But i changed the straps - because it said I could sew them either crossed or uncrossed which would change the length... so I added some length and button holes to the straps and some hand covered buttons:)

I like it.
Excuse the cardboard box background... moving house.
